Detour Chords
Detour:Patti Page.
#5 in 1951.

           (Capo 1st fret.)

CHORUS:
G C
Detour, there's a muddy road ahead, 
  G
detour, paid no mind to what it said.
  C
Detour, oh, these bitter things I find,
            D                 G
should have read, that detour sign.

#1.
G
Headed down life's crooked road, lots of things 
                                                 D
I never knowed, because of me not knowin', I now pine.
        G          G7               C
Trouble got in the trail, spent the next five years in jail..
            D                G              
should have read that detour sign.

CHORUS:
G C
Detour, there's a muddy road ahead, 
  G
detour, paid no mind to what it said.
  C
Detour, oh, these bitter things I find,
            D                 G
should have read, that detour sign.

#2.
G
When I got right to the place where it said, 'About Face,'
                                     D
I thought that all my worries were behind.
        G         G7           C
But the farther I go, the more sorrow I know..
            D                G
should have read that detour sign.

CHORUS:
G C
Detour, there's a muddy road ahead, 
  G
detour, paid no mind to what it said.
  C
Detour, oh, these bitter things I find,
            D                 G
should have read, that detour sign.

#3.
G
When I got stuck in the mud all my hopes 

dropped with a thud..
                                          D
I guess that my heart strings are made of twine.
        G            G7            C
Have no willpower to get, from the hole that I'm in yet..
            D                G
should have read that detour sign.

CHORUS:
G C
Detour, there's a muddy road ahead, 
  G
detour, paid no mind to what it said.
  C
Detour, oh, these bitter things I find,
            D                 G
should have read, that detour sign.

OUTRO:
            D                G
Should have read that detour sign.
            D         C      G
Should have read that detour sign.

Detour!
